I don't have a touchpad so i can't test anything. I'm no expert either but I several years ago used to rip my dvds and convert home movies for viewing on a 360. For the record i have wdtv live now because the xbox has too many codec restrictions. But i digress.

I loaded up handbrake and set it to ipad and it looks like it makes a file with an mp4 container, h.246 video, and aac dolby digital audio.
The above section looks closest to the file the ipad setting on handbrake spits out. Thus i'm just guessing but from the above list it may be a problem with the audio format. the ipad setting sets it under "mixdown" to "dolby pro logic II". Since above it says "2-channel" for xbox i'd suggest trying the ipad setting but change that mixdown setting to "stereo" and see if it works on both. Note the audio codec needs to be set to "low complexity" or "LC" but i don't see that setting anywhere so i wouldn't worry.
This page shows the xbox compatibility list under "supported formats" http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-3...ch-dvds-movies
H.264 support The Xbox 360 console supports the following for H.264:
- File extensions: .mp4, .m4v, mp4v, .mov, .avi
- Containers: MPEG-4, QuickTime
- Video profiles: Baseline, main and high (up to level 4.1)
- Video bit rate: 10 Mbps with resolutions of 1920 × 1080 at 30 fps.
- Audio profiles: AAC, 2-channel, Low Complexity
- Audio max bit rate: No restrictions.
i'd suggest find a small file, like a 1 minute video. And test it till you come up with a setting that works on both your touchpad and your 360. That way you don't wait hours for entire rips to finish. When you get settings that work rip the whole dvd using them.
Oh one other note. The xbox will not play an mp4 that is over 4Gbs in size. You can use perfect setting and if it's 4.2 Gbs it won't play in the 360. Another reason i got a wdtv instead. If that is your problem, that the final dvd ripped comes out over 4 gbs, you just need to change the target file size and it will automatically adjust the video bit rates so that they come out under 4Gbs. But that's really only an issue if you're ripping something like blurays.
under xbox you'll also note, under video profiles it requires under "4.1". If you download stuff of the internet it will often be above 4.1 thus you'd have to reencode it and lower that. That's a pain but it that could be an issue. I also do not see a place to change that setting in handbrake. My gut says that's not an issue. But it's possible. But i'd test it out with ipad settings switching just the audio to stereo first.
Sorry if that's confusing. Hope it helps. Hope i'm didn't provide miss information.
